The Abu Dhabi Waste Management Centre (Tadweer) said it has been conducting awareness campaigns in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi during the holy month of Ramadan. The campaigns are part of the Centre’s ongoing commitment to raise public awareness on the methods for reducing food waste and ways to properly dispose of food and sort it at the source, as well as highlight the importance of keeping the environment clean during the holy month.
The campaigns include lectures organised in cooperation with the Family Development Foundation (FDF) on rationalising consumption and reducing food waste, raising public awareness about the importance of buying just what we need, how to properly store food, reducing food waste, and giving away surplus food to the needy.
The Centre also organised an educational awareness campaign on the proper and healthiest way to deal with waste, reducing its volume, and recycling it, which was held across three days at Al Jimi Mall in Al Ain. The campaign included various interactive activities for the public which focus on reducing food waste and maintaining general hygiene, as well as displaying awareness content on pests, and the methods for combatting them. In addition, the campaign included interactive contests which aimed to enhance public awareness on different topics, showcasing the tools and equipment used by the Centre to maintain public hygiene and combat pests in Abu Dhabi.
The activities also included awareness campaigns at Ramadan tents in Khalifa City, Abu Dhabi, which focused on reducing waste and sorting it at the source. Tadweer also informed attendees on the right methods for contacting the entity to benefit from the Centre’s services, as per the statement.
